Exclusive: Luke Evans on The Crow reboot

The Hobbit star talks faithfulness to the comics

The reboot of The Crow is already one of the most anticipated and yet tentative reboots currently in the works.

While the original went on to become a cult classic, its troubled and tragic production (during which lead Brandon Lee was tragically killed on-set) casts a shadow over any future efforts.

Which is why all eyes are on Hollywood's hottest leading man, Luke Evans, who has taken up the mantle in preparation of the forthcoming reboot.

We spoke to the star in-between chats about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, about what fans can expect, its faithfulness to the comics and source material, and why fans would be happy with what they have planned.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opens in UK cinemas 13 December 2013.

      Do we really need this? Does everything need to be remade?

      "Does everything need to be remade?" ---- Not everything needs to be remade, but if the remake is a great film, then what's the problem. I genuinely do not understand the "remakes = bad" mindset that a lot of people have. If we had no remakes, we would have no Man on Fire (Denzel version), no The Fly (Cronenberg edition), no Heat, no Dawn of the Dead from Snyder and no Scorsese version of Cape Fear just to name a few. You can like remakes and you can like the originals; there is no either / or scenario. Take, for example, the upcoming Godzilla movie. That looks awesome from the footage so far, but if the NO REMAKES! brigade had their way, it would never see the light of day.

      I love Luke Evans, but I wish they wouldn't remake this movie. They really should leave it has a tribute to Brandon Lee. He was perfect & so was the movie. Why do they feel they have to constantly remake movies, are they running out of ideas? Give us something new. Half the time the remakes end up being c**p.
